African Psychology:    Toward Its Reclamation, Re-Ascension & Revitalization:    

African Psychology responds to innate questions, why is there a need for a Black psychology and where is it (the field) going? A single text is incapable of capturing and reflecting the essential passion and full integrity of African (black) psychology. However, with a desire to at least provide some guidance in understanding the vital nature and historical legacy for the re-ascension of African (black) psychology. African Psychology is offered as a preliminary attempt to call for the re-ascension of African (black) psychology, African Psychology is offered as a preliminary attempt to call for the reclamation, re-ascension and revitalization of a discipline dedicated to the illumination, understanding and study of the Human Spirit.
